Best castle in Denmark

I have lived in Denmark for 11 years now and this is by far the BEST castle (in my opinion) in Denmark. Privately-owned and well kept. If you are into the "more classical... read more

I have lived in Denmark for 11 years now and this is by far the BEST castle (in my opinion) in Denmark. Privately-owned and well kept. If you are into the "more classical" castles, you may not agree. In the attic of the castle there is an old doll that has a myth attached to it. You may not move... More

The exterior was amazing and being surrounded by award winning gardens it was something you would see in a fairytale book. We arrived around lunch time and we spent all afternoon trying to view as much as we could. Walking around the garden took a while, it was truly magnificent. The castle is a museum to quite a few collections,... More

Marvelous day out in this beautiful place in fairness it's more an ancestral home than a castle but it's very beautiful the house and extensive gardens are worth a tour great eating place and gift shop . They sell their own beer which I thoroughly recommend . A great day out

When we first glimpsed Egeshov Castle it was a dream-like experience. On a day when skies are cloudless it appeared like part of some sort of fantasy defying description. "Wow!" covered the moment. To visit the castle is expensive - well over a 1000 kroner for four people - more when the inevitable food, ice cream, beer and a gift... More

Extremely nice castle and surroundings, specially for kids. Lots of history and activities and everything looks as good as new. The entrance ticket might seem expensive, but Denmark in general is expensive and what it offers is definitely worth the effort.

We have a holiday home about 5 miles from Egeskov. We buy a season ticket in April and visit when we are over. We take friends who stay with us or just call in and look at the gardens, The fuschia garden is beautifully laid out. Everyone who comes with us thinks it is fantastic. The museums are well laid...

We enjoyed walking the grounds and seeing the castle. It is a good place for the family with young kids. Great cafe and gardens. Unfortunately, as this is a private venture it is somewhat expensive and commercial.

What a beautiful place! We toured the castle with a guide that was arranged by the conference we were attending and had a wonderful time. I loved the exhibition of Marie Antoinette's dress (they recovered a bit of the actual fabric and some sketches of a dress that Marie Antoinette commissioned) , Tatiana's palace (the most amazing dolls house I...
